Lotus 18

This car competed in the HGPCA Pre-66 Grand Prix Cars race at the VSCC's SeeRed meeting at Donington Park in September 2005.
It's the 1961 1475cc Lotus 18 of Mark Griffiths. The mid-engined Lotus 18 was a replacement for the front-engined Lotus 16 and the first such car to be built by Lotus, and was used in Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula Junior racing. It was succeeded by the Lotus 21 in Formula 1 and the Lotus 20 as a Formula Junior car. On 18 August 2016 I showed a photograph of a Lotus 18 that I had taken at Donington Park in 2004.
